Latest Obsessions for Fall 2017

GemGossip.com

My love for the color blue continues, even through fall when oranges & browns are en vogue. I've become obsessed with the blue carved lapis ring that I have had listed for sale so much that I've decided to move it into my personal collection. I might still let it go but I'm not sure--I think seeing a very similar one in Erie Basin's sold archives made me want to keep it. Side note: does anyone else just blow through 2-3 hours browsing through Erie Basin's sold archives?? lol

I want to say I've probably sold about 100+ pieces of my personal collection since I decided to get more organized and curated with my collection. I'm quite happy with where my collection is at right now, although I'm still hunting for an epic man-on-the-moon moonstone ring and a kunzite piece. I'll probably sell more from my collection but in the meantime, these are my faves.

Speaking of being obsessed with blue...my 33rd birthday happened earlier this month and this aquamarine and black enamel beauty from Laurel Stearns became mine! Obviously it was purchased by myself, for myself. Haven't I made it any more clear, year after year, that everyone should buy themselves a birthday gift?! Anyway, I've seriously worn it SO much since I got it and I'm incredibly lucky to have scored this ring late on a Saturday night, within minutes of her posting it.

I've been changing up my ear stack since acquiring these David Webb nail earrings and I gotta say I'm fully obsessed with my newest addition, the Vada Jewelry ear hanger. It slides behind your ear and gives the illusion of having some of the more unique piercings done. I've got three holes in both ears and I think that's all I can handle. Ear cuffs & ear hangers for life!

I brought along some of Arrow & Anchor Antiques' inventory with me when I went to Boston and continued playing with it when I got back. I don't think most people appreciate the amazingness that is moss agate, pictured in the center. I have a thing for dendritic agate and this combo of rings is just UGHHHHH SO GOOD.

BCE Jewelry spent a few days in Nashville and I showed her around town! She also came over to play in my jewelry box and I played with her jewels (seen above). Every year she takes a country-wide road trip and clients secure a spot to view her one-of-a-kind pieces. She usually starts with a full plate of jewels and heads back to California on empty, leaving her to work on some new pieces!

These "animals on wire" rings are just the cutest and I suggested that they could also be worn on chains as pendants, but this was the first time I actually tried my own suggestion. And omg I am in love!! All three are available and are $55 each. The wire is 14k solid gold.
